The Happy Little Baker blogged about Stratford Food Festival a while ago, and made it sound genuinely worth queuing to go into town, so this year I managed to persuade Daddy Bear to come with me and brave town on a Saturday. Honestly, after living in a tourist trap for the majority of your adult life, you learn to avoid certain places at all costs. But the lure of food does make it very very tempting!
And I wasn’t disappointed – it was gorgeous in the sunshine (if a little bit manic with a pushchair!) and well worth the queues. Any Bear friends who live near, I urge you to go (it’s on both days of the weekend) as there are lots of foodie demonstrations, loads to sample for free – especially if you are a fan of flavoured oils, honey and jam like Mummy Bear is – and local produce to buy in the Farmer’s market section.
The Bears have returned with full tummies, plenty of cupcakes (strictly for market research you see) and some super cheap punnets of local raspberries – for adventures in Jam #2!
